Also bought a Richard blazer in 48, the sleeves end 2/3 of the way down my forearm...
I want to clarify this point, because when I first read this, I was like "No way, Robert Geller usually cuts his arms pretty long. I have a regular long reach, and the sleeves on his knit pieces often hit at or even just below the wrist.
So, I just got this from afixedpoint, and it's obvious that whoever had it before him had the parts professionally shortened, probably by about 2 inches, maybe to make it more like a "regular" blazer. Either that, or something wierd happened at the factory. For one thing, I compared it to my black one that I got from Maas&Stacks, and the finishing at the arms is different. On the black one, the arms have a single line of stitching, while this one has a (actually superior) surge stitch. I was a little surprised at first, but I sorta like it for spring - with the shortened arms, it has this gi/kimono effect that I find really interesting - I am not sure that any of you guys have ever read my ramblings, but one of my favorite silhouettes is that of the aikidoika:
So, right now I am wearing it with loose jeans, low tops, and some arm jewelry.
